I took the " I'd rather have both" as HDR10 & 10+ , the rest of my comments were directed more generally at the overall topic . Are there any devices that support DV that don't support HDR 10?

Higher Video Resolutions support a range of higher resolutions and faster refresh rates including 8K60Hz and 4K120Hz for immersive viewing and smooth fast-action detail.
Dynamic HDR ensures every moment of a video is displayed at its ideal values for depth, detail, brightness, contrast, and wider color gamuts—on a scene-by-scene or even a frame-by-frame basis.
48G cables enable up to 48Gbps bandwidth for uncompressed HDMI 2.1 feature support including 8K video with HDR. The cable is backwards compatible with earlier versions of the HDMI Specification and can be used with existing HDMI devices.
eARC supports the most advanced audio formats such as object-based audio, and enables advanced audio signal control capabilities including device auto-detect.
Game Mode VRR features variable refresh rate, which enables a 3D graphics processor to display the image at the moment it is rendered for more fluid and better detailed gameplay, and for reducing or eliminating lag, stutter, and frame tearing.
4K120hz is only one part , I think the improved ability to handle dynamic metadata and increased bandwidth are more important , even though I will probably have my kick ass gaming PC built in the next couple months so I will be able to run 4k120hz .
The main reason I'm concerned about 2.1 is because I've never owned a device that could update HDMI with firmware and this close to implementation I would rather get the latest to future proof at least for a few months , and I really do expect someone to implement new HDCP that will be not be backward compatible , like HDCP 2.2 was with HDMI 2.0 .
